Center for Civic Engagement

Get Involved in Civic Issues

As engaged citizens, it is important to seek out knowledge about pressing social issues. It is equally important that we understand the ways we can take action in order to affect positive change.

Nazareth is providing a list of resources for students, staff, and faculty regarding how to get more involved in our community and with our current pressing social issues.

Your right. Your responsibility. Your vote.

The objectives of the #NazVotes initiative are to increase the number of students who are registered voters as well as encourage students to become active citizens in civic and political engagement matters. 

You have the opportunity to let your voice be heard not just by registering to vote, but by going out there and voting in EVERY election you're eligible. 

Democracy depends on you.

    Election Resources for the Classroom:

    The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) and American Federation of Teachers developed a resource for faculty in response to an unprecedented spike in hate crimes and threats, both physical and verbal, on college and university campuses in the United States after the election. This resource includes information on what is protected classroom speech and conduct and what is not, and gives attention to non-tenure-track faculty members.

    The document, "Frequently Asked Questions for Faculty in the Wake of the 2016 Election," is available, along with other resources for faculty, in the "FAQs" section of the AAUP website.
